Real Betis 1-6 Real Madrid

Cristiano Ronaldo
Cristiano Ronaldo's goal was his first in La Liga in four games

Real Madrid kept up the pressure on city rivals Atletico at the top of La Liga with a big win at Real Betis.

Isco scored twice while Cristiano Ronaldo's fourth of the season helped Zinedine Zidane's side to victory after a run of four successive draws.

Raphael Varane headed in Real's opener before Karim Benzema's close-range finish and Marcelo's looped strike put Real in control at the break.

Alvaro Cejudo's goal briefly gave Betis hope before Isco and Ronaldo struck.

The win means Real are level on 18 points with league leaders Atletico, who are ahead on goal difference.
